India will enter the Oval stadium today with the intention of chasing the huge target of 444 runs to win the World Test Championship final against Australia. On the fourth day, India’s second innings had a good start as the skipper Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill began the chase with an ideal run rate, but the partnership they were building was soon broken by Boland as Gill played a back shot and the ball was caught by the gully fielder Cameron Green. The dismissal created a huge controversy over the catch, and the officials got a lot of backlash from cricket fans, which included some ex-cricketers too.
Shami shows belief in the Team
After the first dismissal, India lost two more wickets, but the veteran fast bowler Mohammad Shami believes that they will definitely win the WTC final today. Shami believes that the Indian team is ready to contravene the record books.
After the play for the fourth day was over, a post-match conference was held, and Shami told the media that “India will 100 percent win the match tomorrow, we always fight till the end and do well all around the world, so we are confident and we all will come together to win the final.
Team has many successful memories
Shami’s confidence matches the spirit expressed by Shardul Thakur after the third day, when he said that the team feels that they are capable of chasing 450 or more. The team’s confidence also comes from successful memories, which include the 2021 Border Gavaskar series, where India showed exceptional batting and pulled off a notable win.
